Aqua Palette

This energizing palette soars. Conventional yellow and blue get a twist with pale aqua standing in for a more saturated hue. Poppy red ratchets up the interest. This youthful color combo turns fairly simple fabrics into something really special.

Designer: Khristian Howell

Getting Started:

Use a ratio formula to help you put together a color scheme. Choose one main color to serve as 40-60 percent of your color palette, then one to two supporting colors to comprise 30-40 percent of your color palette, and fill the remainder with one to two accents. Thinking of color this way can help you determine how much of each color to use. Go to the next slide to see how this scheme breaks out.
